Engaging the C-Suite in Nursing Workforce Planning
Lunch & Learn Workshop held on Wednesday, March 20th from 12:00 – 1:00 pm facilitated by speaker Barbara MacArthur, RN, MN, FAAN.
By attending the workshop, the attendees will learn how to:
Barbara MacArthur, RN, MN, FAAN
Co-Director, The Kansas Nursing Workforce Center
Clinical Assistant Professor, The University of Kansas School of Nursing
I describe my life and career as dynamic and a privilege. I am diligent in my commitment to family, the next generation, and the community I live in. I am shameless in my zeal for healthcare and for nursing. Professionally, I have combined advanced clinical practice, education, national and international public policy formation, and leadership.
My BSN from the University of Missouri and my Master’s in Nursing from the University of Kansas served as strong foundations. My post-graduate studies included ethics and healthcare public policy. I was a Wahington Annenberg Program Fellow in Public Policy Communication. I have had appointments by five governors in three states, serving on the Governor’s Commission for Women in Texas, and on the Board of Directors of the Able Trust which was charged with providing Floridians with disabilities opportunities for employment. I have testified before Congress, served on National Institutes of Health panels, and co-authored an Institute of Medicine report addressing organ donation and transplantation. I was the Chief Nursing Officer for a 770-bed hospital in Florida which humbled me and re-grounded me to the personal and vital nature of caring for patients and for those who do so.
I started my professional career at the University of Kansas Hospital, left for over 20-years, and returned 12 years ago, serving as the Vice President of Cardiac Services for the Health System. In May of 2023, I transitioned to the University of Kansas Medical Center and was named the Co-Director of the Kansas Nursing Workforce Center.
